Jordan Desert Wadi Rum | Facts about this Mars-like Destination

Jordan’s desert, Wadi Rum offers 360 degree views of out-of-this-world landscape and a peek into bedouin cultures. From massive sandstone to miles of soft desert sand it is an outdoor paradise for adventure seekers! Start your visit to Wadi Rum with a Jeep tour from the visitors center.

While it is called a Jeep tour, expect a ride on the back of a pick up truck by a local bedouin. These expert guides will show you the time of your life! From natural rock bridges and ancient carvings to sunsets from the back of a camel, Wadi Rum exceeds almost everyone’s expectations!

If epic landscapes are your thing, you will absolutely love Jordan’s desert. Ensure you visit the location of the movie scenes from the Martian (here are other movies filmed in Jordan). You can also find plenty of desert Instagram captions for your photos.

After exploring the landscape, visit a Wadi Rum Bedouin camp and enjoy traditional Jordanian foods before camping under the stars. Some camps offer evening entertainment, others have luxury bubble tents. Whether you visiting on a budget or want a full 5* experience, there is a camp for everyone.

Wadi Rum is my personal favorite part of visiting Jordan and I suggest everyone spend a night at a camp. If you want another bucketlist experience, spend a sunset on the back of a camel in the desert. I have a post about the best camel instagram captions you can use for your photos after!
